OK Jaanu (Music review), Hindi – A R Rahman, Badshah & Tanishk Bagchi

Posted by Karthik

Kaara fankaara‘s promising start devolves into droning nama nama nei. Enna sonna is adequately pleasant; more Arko than Rahman. Jaanu is jubilantly uptempo and instantly catchy. Saajan aayo re is a pleasant surprise, Jonita’s vocal dexterity and Darbari Kanada raag flowing infinitely better in Hindi. Jee lein is Yuva leftover, while Ameen’s Maula wa salim is aptly pious. Humma humma‘s meh-creation* to replace O Kadhal Kanmani’s best, Parandhu sella vaa, is utterly pointless. The soundtrack’s best is Malargal kaettaen-equivalent, Sunn bhavara! Set to raag Bihag, Shashaa Tirupati aces the lush semi-classical melody, beautifully supported by the tabla. Jaanu trumps Kanmani.
